It’s a natural response for us to defend ourselves because who wants to be taken advantage of? I don’t.
A few months ago, I almost confronted the person who’s causing so much pain to my mother even though I don’t like confrontation. I was already thinking what to say and rehearsing how to deliver it.
I couldn’t sleep.
I was sure that I was about to do the right thing, but I remembered a Bible verse I read few days before that day.
The Lord will fight for you, you have only to be silent.
Exodus 14:14 ESV
I know that the Lord was saying, “Hush, my daughter. Let me handle it.”
I obeyed, felt nothing but peace, and slept like a baby.
